If you live in Primm, or anywhere in the vicinity of Clark County, Express Bail Bonds is only a phone call away. Our agents can travel anywhere in the state of Nevada. We have solid working relationships with law enforcement agencies and courts throughout the state. When we get your call, one of our agents will get to work processing your application and securing your 15% premium. They will be on their way in a short period of time to post bond and get your loved one back home as soon as possible.
When you first place your call to our office, we will need to know some basic information. The defendant's full name, date of birth, and where they are being detained is essential. While it would help to have as much information as possible, we have the ability to track down most arrests and get the information we need while you are on the phone with us. It puts the application on a fast track and allows us to get the ball rolling and your loved one back home where they belong.
After an Arrest
As soon as your loved one is brought to the jail, the intake process begins. Their identity will be verified, fingerprints taken, photographed, and placed in a holding cell. Once they have been formally charged with a crime, we will know how much it will take to post their bond and obtain their release. The intake process takes anywhere from 2 to 6 hours depending on the time of day and how busy the jail is. Once a bond has been posted, the release process begins. This can take up to 8 hours, again depending on how busy the jail is and how many people are on duty at the time.
Your Right to Post Bail
The 8thAmendment of the United States Constitution gives every person the right to post a bond that is comparable to that of the value of the crime. For example, a bond for misdemeanor battery can be as low as $800, while a 1st Degree murder charge may carry a bond as high as $1 million. Cash bonds must be paid in full, in person, directly to the courts in order for the defendant to be released. If the defendant is given a surety bond option, then a co-signer will be needed who is willing to post their bond. This requires a 15% non-refundable, non-negotiable fee that is required by the state. The bail bonds agent will post the remainder of the bond so your loved one can be released.
Both the co-signer and the defendant have responsibilities they must adhere to while the bond is in place. The co-signer agrees to pay the entire bond amount if, for any reason, the defendant doesn't fulfill their obligations. They also agree to maintain contact with the defendant and to make sure they appear in court at the scheduled time. If for any reason, the co-signer no longer chooses to be responsible for the defendant's bond, they can ask that it be revoked. They will be released from their obligations and the defendant will be placed under arrest and returned to jail.
The defendant's responsibilities include:
- Appearing in court when required
- Checking in with their bail bond agent on a regular basis
- Avoiding any more charges
- Staying within the jurisdiction of the courts
- Abiding by any restrictions the court may have placed on them
- Notifying the court of any changes in address, phone number, or employment
If the defendant misses court a warrant will be issued for their arrest and the co-signer will immediately become responsible for the full amount of the bond. If the defendant misses court due to unforeseen circumstances, they can call the court and reschedule their hearing date. Their bond will be reset and they will be allowed to remain out on bail.
